COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A decadent Oatmeal Stout brimming with cocoa and espresso aromas. This beer features a rich, dark chocolate and roasted coffee flavor with a creamy mouth feel and wonderfully dry finish. The addition of U.S. grown fuggles hops contributes the perfect amount of bitterness to this exceptionally balanced beer.

Deep brown pour with darker brown head that settled from a half inch to thin whisps quickly. Nose full of roasty malt, iron or bright cola syrup, vanilla and oak, overall a bit sweet and oaty. Carbonation is lively for the style, full mouthfeel but frothy, slightly warm finish. Taste first of chocolate, strongly brewed coffee, roasty malts and a healthy dose of vanilla. Good stout with great chocolate tones. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From a bottle. Pours dark brown with a smooth, fizzy tan head. Tastes earthy, light wood, light alcohol, and light ash. Light/medium body and low carbonation. Smells like earth, light smoke, light booze, and a hint of caramel.

Finally, someone bottled wizard blood! This potion pours black with hints of dark plum which I swear is the magic part. Either that or liquid velour. It smells of cocoa, molasses and super espresso and delivers taste-wise with that and nuts, dark toffee and some peaceful hops, just sitting in an armchair by the fire and letting the malt magic manifest. Feels a bit syrupy but not sickly so.

12oz bottle in a tulip. Pours black with a lacy, beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, some coffee and dark chocolate, some hints of bitterness, and some dough. Flavor the same with a nice blend of the dark malts. Smoother texture. A solid stout.
